Local cooperation key to south stability

UNIFIL Commander Maj. Gen. Luciano Portolano speaks during an interview with The Daily Star in Beirut, Friday, June 17, 2016. (The Daily Star/Mohammad Azakir)

This article was amended on Saturday, June 18 2016

In a previous version of this story, Maj. Gen. Luciano Portolano is incorrectly quoted as saying: “Currently we have more than 20,500 peacekeepers who carry out ... 550 operational activities on a daily basis.” In fact, the number of peacekeepers is 10,500, not 20,500. The story has been modified to reflect that change.

A version of this article appeared in the print edition of The Daily Star on June 18, 2016, on page 2.
